Ta-Daaa!

And, behold, we have achieved Chicago's first snowfall of the winter! 11th of November, folks. The woolly-bear caterpillars did seem awfully fuzzy when I saw them back in September . . .

It snowed here today too, but it also snowed one day in October, so this wasn't our first. It's melting, thank goodness.

Apparently, there are parts of Michigan that got eight inches. It's gonna be a fun winter . . .

We got two inches of accumulated snow today in Lexington, Ky, which is pretty far south to get accumulation this early. Not a good sign!

Looks like I'd better stock up on cocoa powder. There's going to be a long winter coming, and much hot chocolate will be required.

I've been told it snowed this morning in NYC, but I was tucked safely in bed until the AM had passed me by. (Long night.) How is it November? And how is there snow already?

I was definitely impressed to see the snow. Usually in November, the radio threatens snow and all we get is rain, but there was some actual snow here.

I'm guessing the NYC snow melted fairly quickly?

I didn't actually see it, but then I didn't look out my window until around noon and actually get out until 2:30. That's plenty of time for Mr. Sun to melt it all away, at least in the city. In the suburbs, though, they apparently got more than a dusting. A professor in our program posted a picture to FB taken in the late afternoon, and there were still some serious snow patches.

So not exactly a blizzard, but not completely inconsequential either. I do hope this is the end of it for a bit.
